Figure Drawing Friday :: 01
I'm planning on posting a new figure drawing each and every Friday. Maybe this will encourage me to post more often! If I start to slack you're allowed to slap me. Be gentle though. I'm tender.

Figure drawing is one of those things that I just don't get to do that often anymore. It's something we can all grow from, but it's also one of the first things to fall by the wayside if we're short on time. That's a shame.

With the limited amount of time for a pose, you're forced to boil the drawing down to the essentials. In a timed session there's no time to waste. Each line is crucial from the initial foundation drawing to the final highlights. You don't have the luxury of fiddling with the details... and I'm a detail guy. I'm forced to NOT draw detail! This is one of the aspects of figure drawing that's so appealing to me. It's a vast departure from my daily commercial work.
